president challenged by a member of his own party, pat buchanan ran against george herbert walker bush to no avail. the question is president obama more concerned about his re-election than the welfare of the country? it depends on who you are, if you're a tea partier and republican, yes. if you're not with one of those groups, you'll realize he's looking after the middle class and the poor. after all he's not a republican. mcconnell said his main goal was to make this man, quote, a one-term president, who is only thinking about elections. michael in california rights, seriously, jack, not only is the question inflammatory, it is inaccurate. the question should be aren't the house republicans concerned with raising the debt ceiling or defeating president obama? you're showing your true colors, old man, trying to move over to fixed news where you belong. no, i think he's desperately trying to roll a huge uneven, uncompromising republican boulder up hill. whether he's more concerned about re-election, the president is correct to insist on a debt limit that will take us past the election.

voted for when ronald reagan and george herbert walker bush were president and that would make them look bad. and he had a real good way of being able to do that to the american people. >> yeah, come on, except the barack obama has increased federal spending from $3 trillion to $4 trillion in 2 1/2 years. under the bush and reagan and clinton administrations, it didn't even go up by a trillion over all 20 of those years. so i think that -- but i think that the 14th amendment itself is kind of irrelevant here because the 14th amendment was passed to make sure the confederacy would honor the northern debts after the civil war and, you know, that's kind of neither here nor there. it is still there and could be interpreted that way and that's fine. let's pay the debt. just don't borrow for new spending. >> exactly right. >> gotcha. dick morris, thanks so much for coming in with your perspective. >> always a pleasure. straight ahead, an update to the teenager that is to say accused of killing his parents, and then throwing a party in their house. this morning, we're seeing the pictures tak

. if you think back to 1990, president george herbert walker bush agreed to $2 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes. he agreed to this with the congressional democrats, but that's not what ended up happening. all of the democrats' tax hikes went into effect, but the promised spending cuts never materialized. we cannot fall for this trick again, and that's the same trick that we see from the people on the other side, my democratic colleagues and the president. high taxes do not lead to more government revenue. we've seen proof of this in years past. instead of raising taxes, let's leave money in the hands of small businesses, job creators so they can create jobs. more jobs means more revenue and less deficit. . higher taxes means more people out of work an higher debt. in fact president obama admitted in 2009 that, quote, the last thing that you want to do in the middle of a recession is to raise taxes, unquote. in the past liberals in congress have adamantly spoken out in opposition to debt ceiling increases. this senator obama said in 2006 that, quote, a debt limit increase was a s
